Just because u use it does not make it important it might be important for u but ur in a minority.. Many people never use there's and rarely do people even complain about a phone not having itQuote:

If your data usage is lower then say 8GB a month then it might be fine and worth it for you to make the switch and get the subsidized phone...
The benefit of buying on outright is that you are not locked into a contract and can leave whenever and most likely sell the newer phone for a good chunk to put towards the next one when it comes about.
About HDMI out...
If not too many ppl use it.....not to many ppl use MHL then. Both are used to connect to an HDTV. I dont know how we can even determine if that feature is used by a minority or a majority. Are there stats on hdmi cord sales for phones? Some Moto phones had bundles that included it. I'm pretty sure ppl that got it in a bundle used it if they could.
HTC and Samsung phones use MHL, unless thats changed. IMO thats better cuz its used by the micro USB port. Just need an adapter. Just did some more reading up on it ....MHL has it pluses and minuses... I still like that it uses the micro USB port tho.
Yesterday my 14 year old (muchly misguided grandson) got in the mail a iPhone 5 he saved for and bought. He is on my Verizon plan, which is currently unlimited. My daughter has a GS3 and I have the Tbolt. She had upgraded well after the tiered program was put in place but was told as long as I did not upgrade my phone it would stay that way. When my grandson activated his phone he was immediately put into the Tiered plan even though he was part of my plan. He got 2G and as soon as he activated his phone it downloaded enough data that it used more than 50% of his prorated data for the remaining billing period (5 days)which was only MBs left. I called Verizon and was told that is the way it works, just because he was on my plan didn't mean anything, he still would be charged $30 for 2G of data on the Tiered plan. He was great worked with me and helped me with an option to cover him for the remaining few days. Long story short, doesn't mater if the "mother" phone of the plan is upgraded, if you change out a phone with an subsidized upgrade from Verizon, you will be automatically put on the Tiered plan. So that being said, I had looked at buying a full price phone to maintain the data but now need to go onto the tiered plan because for the 4 of us it will ultimately be cheaper (and monitor the #@$$ out of my grandson). So, hurry up DNA Phablet, it is either going to be you or the GS3....
Should of did more research that's how it's always been... I'll be buying full retail so I can keep my unlimited data and if they try to take it I'll take my 280$ to sum1 else cus I use 15-20gbQuote:
